  • "Yes, I know. It's dangerous out there."

In another difficult interlude for folks simply hoping to get from here to there in this city sans motorized transport, a pedestrian and bicyclist were struck by cars in separate incidents last night and this morning.


At around 8:45 p.m. Monday, a cyclist was struck by by a taxi. The bicycle rider was transported to San Francisco General Hospital; his or her condition is uncertain. SF Weekly called moments ago to the police department for an update; when we know more, you'll know more. 

Meanwhile, at 6:09 Tuesday morning, a pedestrian's morning plans were altered to include a trip to San Francisco General after he or she was struck by a car at Sacramento and Battery. 

Police report that the pedestrian's exact injuries are uncertain, "but appear non-life threatening." 


That, it would seem, is the best news of the morning. 

Update: Police characterize the cyclist's injuries as "non-life threatening."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
